NHL.com @NHL

NEW YORK - Pavel Kubina's power-play goal three minutes into overtime snapped the Toronto Maple Leafs' losing streak and delivered the latest crushing blow to the New York Rangers' sinking playoff chances with a 3-2 victory Sunday night.

Kubina took a pass above the left circle from Niklas Hagman and fired a drive past goalie Henrik Lundqvist on the Maple Leafs' second shot of overtime. Toronto earned the power play when Blair Betts hooked Hagman 2:07 into the extra session.

The slumping Rangers were fortunate to even earn a point as they tied it on Michal Rozsival's goal with 39.1 seconds left in regulation.

Rozsival, who earlier in the night gave up his No. 3 as it was raised to the rafters in honour of former defenceman Harry Howell, broke in No. 33 in style. With the Rangers enjoying a 6-on-4 skating advantage, Rozsival threaded a shot inside the right post from the slot.
